Image inspired by a photo taken in Venice, Florida... there was no sand, just plenty of fountain spray. Borrowed the figures and set them on a beach, mostly made up fantasy.
Pleased with the light and color, especially the plastic toys. The boy on the left painted himself! Painting was done on a used panel, a recycled portrait.
Didn't like it much so turned it upside down. Oil over acrylic is fine!
Drew compostion in oil thinned with Gamsol.
Color block-in underpainting. Could see something happening that I liked better than the portrait.
Like a gardener, an artist can bury mistakes!
